J. Caleb Bell, CRE®, Named 2023 PACE Champion of the Year
Bricker Graydon LLP Partner & Public Finance Practice Group Chair, J. Caleb Bell, has been named PACE Champion of the Year by his PACENation colleagues across the nation. Bell will be honored as a 2023 PaceSetter at the PACENation formal awards ceremony on June 7th in New York City.
Having authored Ohio’s Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) statute, Bell advises lenders, local governments, and private businesses to effectively use PACE financing—leading to over 200 energy-saving projects generating $700+ million in new financing. Caleb has spearheaded Bricker Graydon’s PACE Financing Resource Center as an open-source and collaborative portal, cementing Bricker Graydon’s PACE thought leadership. He has assembled a team—including Bricker Graydon subsidiaries Ohio PACE, Energize Kentucky, and recently formed Tennessee PACE—to place the firm at the forefront of emerging PACE markets across the Midwest. In all, Caleb has worked tirelessly to promote PACE as a powerful economic development tool—moving Ohio forward and making communities across the nation better, cleaner, and greener places to live, work, and play.
As a member of PACENation, the firm plays a vital role in the movement and association of people in support of PACE financing.
